OHS.....Time to beat the goat:rolleyes:

I began working with my 3# PVC trainer, then progressed to a 25# bar for 15 minutes of work. I think it went well. I did noticed that my shoulder mobility sucked though. I really need to work on that area.

Anyhow, I stepped up to an empty Oly bar to finish practicing for an additional 10 minutes.

Still managed 2 miles in 16:14:kicking0: I wasn't really breathing hard but my body was aching during the last 1/2 mile. My second mile was slightly faster....

[B]Strength[/B]:weight_l:

I spent 15 minutes working up to a push press 1RM; I'd never found my 1RM when I dabbled in strength training. Anyhow, I wanted to work on hip drive since it was pointed out as a deficiency at L1 seminar.

I had an excellent day off yesterday, and felt recharged. Time to get to work!!

[B]Skills[/B]

I did 20 minutes of goat work on the snatch balance. I really despised snatching but it's a necessary evil :evilsmile and I want to improve. I began work with my 4# trainer, and progressed up: 2-2-2-2 with 45-65-85-105#

I found that my overhead stability sucks....I stay nice and tight but my shoulders are an area that require more focus. I'm going to begin more strengthening there and see where it takes me.
